The Bride (1985)

The Bride (1985) Can a male scientist create a woman “as bold and proud as a man. A woman equal to ourselves.” What a chauvinistic question, especially when the man christens his perfect woman “Eva,” after Genesis. Designed, I suspect, as a vanity project either for Sting or for Jennifer Beals, the screenwriter Lloyd Fonvielle rips up Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein for a plot that tumbles wildly into a confusing briar patch. However, not even Frank Roddam’s direction can coerce Jennifer Beals to swoon before Sting. In fact, a far greater love arises between Rinaldo the Dwarf and Victor the Monster. Most everybody joins the Monster’s doleful wail when the dwarf David Rappaport, the most interesting performer on screen, dies. This convoluted electrolyte concoction cannot decide whether it’s an homage to, or a high kamp parody of Hammer films. Sting stews in a Romantic sulk, relieved by an occasional erotic glimpse of Beals’ backside.


Inside the wedding cake and all the frills and doilies,

Vanilla virginity thrives, her blood proof

Of the hymen uncorked, on a dopamine buzz.Image result for vintage woman swimming large champagne glass party gif

A little death, several short quickenings

Ripple through the body, and the hell of it is

Nobody really knows what the other one’s thinking.

The spear thrusting through itself.


Rape empowers the dual epicene ,

And so do all the dressings of power –

The whip, the mace, the ropes and chains.

Thee are all variations on the physical act of war,

Sexual guilt punished by the dominatrix general

Who becomes his. and then her, father.

Aren’t eunuchs always the ones responsible for makeup,

Watching porn is the best way not to be vulnerable:

Touched not, abused not, hurt not

In the name of human nature and torture.


Isn’t the boy pleased, blushing before passing out?

Isn’t the girl startled, flabbergasted, and bored,

Wondering who’s going to clean up the mess?
